AUSTRIA
We’re new admirers of golf in Austria.
Everyone knows about the scenery (think
Sound of Music!) but what is less well-
known is the Austrians’ love of food and
their beautiful golf courses. The roads are
super, the towns are “picture-postcard”
and the people are welcoming. Plus, the
fairways are practically empty…It all
makes for a very refreshing holiday.
Our hotel and green-fee rates offer
excellent value but flights and hire cars
are relatively expensive so to help keep
the prices down, take a little bit more time

arrange stop-offs (and tee-times!) on the          Year-round sunshine and just four hours away. Our “all-in” deals at the Ritz-Carlton
